Kohnstamm Communications wins new business

Kohnstamm Communications, the St. Paul-based boutique public relations agency, today announced that it has continued to grow its natural foods industry expertise with the retention of five new clients.
Angie’s, which offers a variety of all-natural kettle corn products as well as the popular popcorn brand BOOM CHICKA POP, has retained Kohnstamm to be the company’s public relations agency of record. Founded in 2001, Angie’s is the fastest-growing brand in the fastest-growing category of snack food, and the company continues to build on its portfolio of innovative, delicious and healthy popcorn snacks.
The Honest Kitchen manufactures “human grade” pet foods, treats and supplements – the highest quality of pet foods available. Its ingredients are free of harsh, dangerous chemical preservatives and fillers, and provide a much healthier, safer and conscientious choice for pets. Kohnstamm will provide strategic public relations counsel and social media strategy to this fast-growth company, starting immediately. 
Enray, part of the J.M. Smucker Company, is a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium organic, gluten-free ancient grain products, including sprouted and non-sprouted grains, pasta, and cookies, primarily sold under flagship brand, TruRoots®.
It’sFresh! is an anti-food waste company, dedicated to delivering breakthrough solutions for food freshness via technological innovation. It’sFresh! hired Kohnstamm to promote its ethylene-removal technology - a discreet but high-tech sheet proven to extend the quality and freshness of produce up to three days. The sheet is already in use by several major retailers worldwide, and the company estimates that it saved several hundred thousand pounds of produce from landfills last year.
Kohnstamm is responsible for all U.S.-based public relations work to support this international client.
Minnesota-based nutrition products company Step One Foods selected Kohnstamm to help spread the word about its all-natural, physician-formulated products designed specifically to help prevent heart disease and lower reliance on prescription medications. The company was co-founded by Minneapolis cardiologist Dr. Elizabeth Klodas, whose resume includes training at the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins. 
“These new clients fit so well into what Kohnstamm Communications is all about – exciting brands with a compelling story to tell,” said Josh Kohnstamm, founder and CEO of Kohnstamm Communications. “The new year has started off well for this agency and we look forward to building on this momentum throughout 2014.”
